This review is from: Seiki SE39UY04 39", 4K, 120Hz LED-LCD HDTV
Pros: I usually don't write reviews after one day, but I decided I had to with this. I will only use this for a computer monitor, but I do have Windows Media Center and access to a cable card TV card, so I have watched TV and it is fine. But as a monitor, it is love at first sight. The text is incredibly sharp and smooth. Photos, especially high resolution look amazing. The Internet looks great. Will be excellent for video editing just because of so much desktop for your timeline.
Cons: Not the most color control options. Not really a gaming monitor. At 4K, only runs at 30Hz, so a little shudder for high moving action. Not a great TV because of no apps and probably a mediocre video processor. I switch to 1080P for TV because WMC doesn't work great with 4K, except in a smaller window on the desktop. From reading the reviews, maybe not the greatest reliability, but heck, for $225 shipped no tax after AMEX $25 off $200, worth a gamble.
Other Thoughts: For the price I paid, amazing computer monitor. I have it mounted to the wall and can extend the monitor across my desk so no need for reading glasses. UPS arrived in good packaging with all the parts in the box. Everything worked great out of the box, no dead pixels that I noticed. I was going to spend $500 and get a namebrand like Samsung, but this was worth the gamble, albeit after only one day of ownership.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Samsung Desktop PC DB-Z70 Core 2 Duo 2.33 GHz 2 GB 160 GB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium
Pros: Nice clean little refurb. Mine came with one 2GB DDR2 occupying one of the four memory slots. Added a couple of spare 1GB and got it to 4GB. Swapped in a 256 SSD and a little better half height video card and it is a good little unit.. Swapped out DVD with a DVD burner. Three SATA connections. Seems to be a standard micro ATX board. Nice case. Nice new copy of Windows 7 home 32bit.
Cons: Included keyboard and mouse might not be the highest quality, but at least it had them.
Other Thoughts: Even without any upgrades, would probably make a good little internet machine for people. Add an SSD and this thing is very useable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy wireless setup, at least for me. Fairly fast. Compact size. I got it for $49.99 via the shell shocker deal, so that was nice.
Cons: I've heard the starter toner doesn't last that long.
Other Thoughts: Here is how I setup wireless. I connected to my main computer via USB cable and totally setup the printer in Windows 7 with the included CD. After it was installed, I went to the Wireless Setup program that installed with the Samsung software. Bear in mind, this computer doesn't have wireless. I started the program and it asked for my router. I picked the wireless router and it set it up, but finally said I could not do it from this computer. I think at this point, it had connected to the router. So when I went to my Windows 7 notebook, I downloaded the Samsung Universal driver from their website, installed it, and it found the printer on my wireless network. I didn't use the included CD, but instead the downloaded driver. It worked. For my iPad and Android devices, I installed the Samsung Mobile Print app. They both found the printer and were able to print wireless.READ FULL REVIEW
